“Great Atmosphere - OK (Just OK) Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

This place has a very cozy vibe - small intimate dining area and dark sexy decor. The host was very friendly and the waiter was adequate. Some of the food could be better however. Coconut shrimp appetizer was way overcooked and the "apple ginger" dipping sauce was absolutely flavorless. Short rib tacos were decent, but also lacked a "pop" of flavor. Tweak the dishes a bit and this place will soar!

“We eat here everytime we are in Palm Springs!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

We love this restaurant - the food is great (best lobster mac and cheese I have ever eaten) - the service is great - the staff is great. We love sitting at the bar and eating. Good wines, too!

“Local Secret”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

This is a local secret. The green beans on the appetizer menu are a favorite (tiny bite) All the food is prepared interestingly. Short Ribs tacos, were good, the meat loaf is excellent.
Dont miss this local secret

i enjoyed roscoe's for happy hour 3 times a week for 6 months and received the best welcome to town when i moved here from the locals and the staff and was made to feel welcome.....i never was loud or caused any problems even moving so people could sit...i was even told i was a great guy and they loved me coming in.......so imagine my surprise to be stoped from entering and told by the owner cj that the bartender was upset (which i had no clue)and that he never liked me so never come to his restaurant again have seen people drunk, complain about people....not allowed to come in when others are there cause they don't get along....one couple comes in wednesdays and another did to but were mad to feel so unwelcome that they changed days....i am 60 years old have never been kicked out of or baned from any restaurant or anyplace for that matter.....

so the bottom line with roscoe's is that if your new in town its great....if your favored by the owner its great.

also do not cause a problem because all my friends were told i was kicked out......nice privacy

my only question still is

"how can you be baned from a resturant with out ever being told other than the staff is up set

i am sooooo happy i moved to palm springs

ps: everytime i tipped the staff at lease 30% for thier kindness
